Rockbox theme set.
I know, it's been a little while since I've posted anything other than PSP and Linux (sometimes both at the same time) related articles, so I figured a change of pace might be in order. Coincidentally, this past weekend, I finished a theme set for RockBox, that has been in the works for some time. I could lie and tell you that it's been a long running project because of some new, ground shaking, UI tweaks, but, I've never been a good liar. So I'll just hide this copy of COD4 while we all pretend I was doing something important.
If you're not familiar with RockBox, It's an open source firmware replacement for many MP3 players. I personally use it on my iPod Video. I won't try to explain all of the benefits in using RockBox over your players official firmware, but trust me, there's plenty. Not the least of which is the ability to customize your graphical interface. If you want to learn more about RockBox then you can visit their website : http://www.rockbox.org/.
UPDATE: Ok. The Texas Sports package of themes is done now. If you haven't already, take a look at them by following the link below.
UPDATE 2: I have updated my Glass N Shadows theme sets to work with the current (as of today, 10/10/2008) Rockbox build. So if you've updated your Rockbox and in turn broke the theme set, or, if the set never worked for you, then download the new files at the link.
UPDATE 3: I've been getting great deal of feedback on the GNS theme lately, and much
of it has come in the form of people wanting my opinion on their edits. So, I've decided
to dedicate a page of the site to user submissions. Give 'em a look. (Use the following links to find the
page you need.)

Ok, on to the theme set.
So, slightly over a month ago, we had a little storm come thru. Hurricane Ike. You might have heard of it. Anyway, It was responsible for some pretty heavy damage here on the Texas coast. Fortunately I live about 70 miles inland, so I didn't have to deal with the storm surge and flooding, that many people had, but we were still hit with hurricane force wind and rain. Now, I know that, given the abundance of hurricane related pictures that flooded the news and internet the wks. following the storm, that you're probably getting a little tired of looking at them, but dang it, I finaly got around to getting these things off of my camera and on to Google, so you're going to have to look at a few more. But seriously, I just wanted to give people a chance to see the local damage from a non-media point of view. All of these were taken in my neighborhood, and the surrounding community.
